DAMI AND DANNII IN NORTH KOREA
When Dami Im won The X Factor last year it was the ultimate success story against all the odds. When the awkward and shy piano teacher from Brisbane came to Australia from Korea aged nine, she was unable to speak a word of English. She was bullied at school and struggled to fit in. But the day she sang her audition for The X Factor in front of Dannii Minogue was the day her life changed forever. But there is another side to the outgoing and quirky songstress — for the first time since her victory, Dami returns to Seoul to discover the family she has never met. In her first guest reporting role, former mentor Dannii Minogue escorts Dami, along with her mother and grandmother, to the most militarized border in the world. Under heavy guard they cross into North Korea in search of answers. It’s highly charged and highly emotional must see TV. There is so much more to Dami Im than anyone could believe. We explore this remarkable singer’s musical roots and the story behind her marriage to the love of her life in Australia. Continue reading »

sundaynightSINKHOLES

In some of our major cities, under big population centers… at any time, without warning, the ground just opens up and swallows everything in its way. They’re called sinkholes – and all across the world more and more are claiming houses, whole streets, vehicles… and as Alex Cullen reports – even people. This amazing Sunday Night investigation into this most mysterious phenomenon takes you inside an active sinkhole, captures sinkholes devouring whole buildings, and talks to relatives who have lost loved ones in sinkhole incidents. We travel to the town in America known as the ‘sinkhole capital of the world’ before returning to Australia and witnessing the birth of a new sinkhole. Frightening yet enthralling, you will never trust the ground beneath your feet again. Continue reading »

LOVE IN A COLD CLIMATE ON THE LITTLE GREEN BOAT THAT COULD
All of us dream – some of us get to live those dreams. This weekend on Sunday Night, Chris Bath takes you on a beautiful, amazing and at times frighteningly dangerous adventure with a remarkable young Aussie couple who decided to do just that. Jess and Chris hadn’t known each other very long when they took the plunge – splashing their entire $20,000 savings on a rickety little 29-foot boat they saw on the internet. It took them months to fix it up before they set out to conquer one of the world’s most dangerous and awesome sailing routes, from Canada through the Northwest Passage to Alaska. What they experience, and the incredible wildlife they film along the way, is only a backdrop to the love story that unfolds on screen. It ends with perhaps the most romantic marriage proposal ever attempted, and how Jess reacts will melt your heart. If you’ve ever toyed with opting out of the rat race to chase your dream this is the story you need to see.

A motor cycle world champ, a reporter’s personal story, Abba and a naked supermodel await your viewing on Sunday Night

AUSSIE LEGEND
The amazing real story behind a remarkable Aussie legend. Mick Doohan is a five times world champion, a giant of motor cycle racing. But what he’s never divulged before is what really ended his career, and how close he came to death after his famous practice lap crash 22 years ago.  Dutch surgeons were itching to amputate his leg, but Mick chose to go with an Italian doctor who saved his leg, and his life, with a jaw-dropping old fashioned medical procedure. On Sunday Night, reporter Mike Willesee introduces us to Mick’s beautiful wife Selina, who’s been by his side the entire way, and takes us inside the couple’s luxurious lifestyle  – a world of private jets and helicopters, and a lavish Gold Coast home they rent out to friends like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Years after he was king of the track, the legend dubbed the ‘Thunder from Down Under’ is anything but retired.  Continue reading »

florence hendersonGROWING OLD DISGRACEFULLY
Dollar-90, Sargeant Sel, B-B Rizzle and the other members of the Hip Operation crew reckon they’ve found the secret to eternal youth: NEVER act your age, even when you’re 94 (and four months). These tough-talkin ‘, crotch-grabbin’ street dancers are possibly the world’s only geriatric hip-hop group. They joke that each dance could be their last, so they’re making every one count. Sunday Night reporter PJ Madam follows this infectiously upbeat group for one wild trip to the World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas. PJ also catches up with a famous face living up to the ‘never act your age’ motto – 79-year-old Brady Bunch star Florence Henderson. Back in her Brady Bunch days, the Brady matriarch was sweet as pie – but as PJ discovers, Florence has now put Carol Brady to bed! Continue reading »

The pair has starred in their first film together and it’s sparked a trend, with two more in production. Continue reading »
